My list is pretty much a mix of bands from the 60's to present day. Some are well known and some aren't. These are my favourite guitar solos from all the songs and records I've heard so far:

Brighton Rock - Queen

Time - Pink Floyd

Time - Asteroid

Highway Star - Deep Purple

All Along The Watchtower - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Voodoo Chile - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Sunshine of Your Love - Cream

Stairway To Heaven - Led Zeppelin

Achilles Last Stand - Led Zeppelin

Since I've Been Loving You - Led Zeppelin

100 Years - Bon Jovi

A Heart Without Home - The Hellacopters

Baby Borderline - The Hellacopters

Little Eyes - Radio Moscow

These are pretty much off the top of my head :)

Aside from the age, any solo of that sort should be banned. Sucky sounding horrible crap.

Ok, post one of your own guitar solos for all to see and judge then.

Unbelievable...

At 8 years old, I was watching The Banana Splits and playing with Matchboxes... This kid is remarkable.

Maybe I put it in the wrong section, but I wanted it to be seen....

Black-Dog (LP version) was the greatest solo ever crafted, assembled, executed and recorded in the realm of 20th century popular music.

Here's another astounding 8-year old...Quinn Sullivan appearing with the great Buddy Guy on stage in 2007.

Quinn Sullivan is now 14 years old and I had the pleasure of seeing him in person last night when Buddy Guy again invited Quinn out on stage to jam at his Hollywood Bowl concert. They did "Strange Brew", "Voodoo Child", and some other blues jamming.

Quinn also has his own albums out and this is one of his own songs, "Getting There" from last night's show.
